I Riemann/Metric Tensor Calculator

  1. May 1, 2016 #1
    Hi all!
    I'm really interested in the physical interpretation of the Riemann and metric tensors. Is there any program that lets you type in a Riemann or metric tensor (or even better, an Einstein tensor) and then gives you an image of how the space would look (i.e. the curved grid lines)?

    Hi, with a rapid search I found this program SageManifolds, for differential geometry and tensor calculus but I discover it only now. On the website they say that the program has some plotting capabilities...

    Thanks! I'll take a look at it.
